Yes, I think so too Cordelia. I did purchase it in the market in Nouakchott in the early 1980s.  Thanks for your comment.

Thanks for your comment, I think you are right, Dayna, its not a classic Tuareg ring, more Mauritanian with its granulation

I have found a photo of a similar ring to this one...much newer than my example....It is on page 220 of Africa Adorned.  The photo is of the hands and feet of a Guedra dancer in Mauritania.  The design is the same but details are slightly different.

Hello Ait Ouakli,

Thanks  for your comment about this ring.  I bought this ring in the bead market in Nouackchott, Mauritania in the early 1980s.  I was told by the ladies in the market that it was Tuareg,  Maybe I need to do some research on it.
